Meteor over Joshua Tree

I photographed this meteor while camping in Joshua Tree National Park on the weekend of 9/3/11:

I was trying to capture how much light from Palm Springs and neighboring cities pollutes the southern sky of Joshua Tree National Park. Quite a lot, as shown by this 50-second exposure. (Joshua Trees are the tree-sized yuccas, shown here, that give the park it's name.)
